ManCat Monday

Cats are the ultimate narcissists. You can tell this by all the time they spend on personal grooming. Dogs aren't like this. A dog's idea of personal grooming is to roll in a dead fish. - James Gorman

I don't know if I am a nar-cis-cist, whatever that means. But I do know I need to wash my face, lick my paw, rub it across my ears, eyes and nose. Rinse and repeat, over and over.

About my porch. Mum got it at Target. It is actually a collapsible portable kennel for woofies, so go and look in the woofie section. Its a Boot & Barkley thing. She got it last summer.

You know if we spent as much time grooming as they do on their hair... we'd really be clean!

We taught our woofie to wash his face like a kitty. We like to help him out too. Haven't noticed any dead fish, though. That porch of yours looks like fun. Mooommmmm!! Can we have one?

Happy Monday, Derby. Having a bath and face-licking is very manly. Rolling in fish (like a d.o.g.) is NOT manly. hehehe
I like your porch, and I hope my mammacat gets on for me too!

purrs,

Derby I think you folded your ear over in that last shot! Is it ok now? Folded ear or not, you are a mancat I look up to!
